Verizon Media has today launched a new podcast series, Build Brand You, a timely and practical guide to help listeners adapt and flourish at home and in the workplace.
The new audio series features guest speakers including Founder of The Huffington Post and Founder/CEO of Thrive Global Arianna Huffington, Head of Mental Health and Wellbeing at the AFL Dr Kate Hall, Director of People Science and Culture at Culture Amp Chloe Hamman, Executive Coach and Director of Be. Coaching Leigh Morrison, and Leadership Strategist at Happiness Concierge Nicole Hatherly.
Packed with practical advice from these leading experts, the five-part series is designed to help listeners build resilience, communicate more effectively, deal with burnout, and redefine work-life balance in this constantly changing environment.
Episode one with Arianna Huffington launches today with the media mogul explaining how she maximises work output whilst minimising day-to-day stresses and how this reflects back into company culture.
“Now, the well-being and mental resilience of employees is seen as a company imperative. As companies know that they cannot really survive, let alone thrive if their employees are stressed out or anxious… Look at our world now, companies are seeing this recognition that mental health has to be at the centre of what employees are offered, coming not just from human resources professionals, but from business leaders.”
The content series comes off the back of the virtual Verizon Media Academy masterclasses that took place earlier this year as part of the company’s free industry talent program.
Anny Havercroft, Director of Brand Innovation and Marketing at Verizon Media ANZ says they are thrilled to be adapting their successful masterclasses and distilling these important lessons for new audiences.
"As our resilience and productivity continues to be tested in new ways, it's no longer enough to be just technically proficient to build your professional brand. We created the Build Brand You podcast series to help people across the industry fine-tune their soft skills to thrive in a world where remote working and video conferencing rules. We have a formidable line-up of international and local experts who have generously shared their wisdom and experience to help us create a stronger and more united industry for the future."
